What are those that glow from afar these




What are those that glow from afar,
These that lean over the golden bar,
Strong as the lion, pure as the dove,
With open arms, and hearts of love!
They the blessed ones gone before,
They the blessed for evermore;
But of great tribulation they went
Home to their home of heavín content.


What are these that fly as a cloud,
With flashing heads and faces bowíd;
In their mouths a victorious psalm,
In their hands a robe and a palm?
Welcoming Angels these that shine,
Your own Angel, and yours, and mine;
Who have hedged us, both day and night,
On the left hand and on the right.


Light above light, and bliss beyond bliss,
Whom words cannot utter, lo, who is this?
As a King with many crowns he stands,
And our names are graven upon His hands.
As a Priest, with God uplifted eyes,
He offers for us His Sacrifice;
As the Lamb of God for sinners slain,
That we too may live, He lives again.


God the Father give us grace
To walk in the light of Jesuís face;
God the Son gives us a part
In the hidden place of Jesuís heart:
God the Spirit so hold us up
That we may drink of Jesuís cup;
As our own Champion behold Him stand,
Strong to save us at Godís right hand.
